Cross posted from Blue Virginia, where we're following the never-ending antics of Virginia Attorney Ken Cuccinelli, wannabe governor and, ultimately, wannabe president of the United States. Shuddderrrrr.

This whole video of The David Pakman ShowL mocking Ken Cuccinelli and Virginia's "crimes against nature" law is very amusing, but I particularly enjoyed this part:

Now, the case at hand consensual, heterosexual oral sex, but...it is a complicated situation, it involves a 47-year-old man and two teenagers above Virginia's age of consent. So I can understand why people would be concerned about this case. But to say that the policy should be that the state decides that consenting adults should not be able to engage in oral sex seems a little bit antiquated to me...and Ken Cuccinelli, I don't know what he's thinking here...Yeah, I mean it's funny, earlier we talked about Exxon, if anyone's guilty of crimes against nature, it's them, but this guy's talking about oral sex...No, people engaging in consensual oral sex, those are the crimes against nature. ExxonMobil spilling oil, not paying for the cleanup, and lying about where they're pumping the oil, that's, I dunno, money is speech, that's just free speech...of course, yeah.

By the way, small government conservatism, right, we don't the government getting involved in the minutae of people's lives, except when it comes to legislating oral sex, then we need them VERY involved...then they need cameras in your bedroom...This could bring a whole new meaning to the term "anal probe"...so we're opening up the door to a lot of interesting hijinks in Virginia, thank you to Ken Cuccinelli...I'm sure he would nominate himself to be one of these anal probers.

Now, can we just make sure that Ken Cuccinelli never becomes Virginia's Governor and Chief Protector of "Nature" from Oral or Anal "Crimes?"  Thanks. :)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I'd like to know if Cuccinelli values (0+ / 0-)

    the esteem of far-right moralists and deep pockets of hyper-conservative donors more than he does the tide of social history and impulse to leave well enough alone.  

    In Virginia or anyplace else, IMO, the last two should hold primacy over the first two by a wide margin.

      Obviously, the answer for Ken Cuccinelli is "the esteem of far-right moralists and deep pockets of hyper-conservative donors." He couldn't give a rat's hindquarters about "the tide of social history and impulse to leave well enough alone," if he even knows what any of that is!

      •  Some old part of me wishes you (0+ / 0-)

        were wrong about that, but of course you are exactly right.  

        This guy is frightening, and I'm not even in the Commonwealth.

          wackjob closely for 6 years now, and he is extremely frightening. Perhaps the scariest thing is that he comes across to a lot of people, even super progressives, as a "nice guy" in person, someone they can't help but "like." That's a dangerous combination, along with this VERY strong skills as a "retail politician," the enormous amount of money likely to pour into Virginia this year on his behalf, and his tremendous ambitious ambition to be governor...Senator...President?!?

            Also, I've discovered that the most moral among us are probably doing in private what they're railing about in public.

    to be the governor of the instinct-driven, people whose behavior is primarily directed by the instinct to dominate and reproduce.
    Indeed, since humans can't reproduce by themselves, the impulse to dominate is justified in the event nobody volunteers to help. However, given that dominion gives satisfaction all by itself, volition is really beside the point.

    As far as mother nature is concerned, how else is man to exercise his dominion but by violating her?

    Whats the deal with this freak anyway? Did he walk in on his Mom with a guy when he was 8 and get all emotionally scarred? Boohoo. What kind of guy stays up at night getting all hot and bothered worrying about whether anyone in the world is getting a blowjob or having anal sex?

  •  Where Are The White Baby Families? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Calamity Jean

    That's the real issue behind the right's obsession with sex and abortion. The making of more white kids by what's considered 'traditionally married' families. And not wasting the baby maker.

    But with attacks on the economic viability of those families by some of the same GOP wing nuts, party leaders and company owners, they're not helping what they've been wanting. When more of the middle class regain economic stability, that will have a serious affect on birthrate. More folks will feel comfortably relaxed about supporting another life. Perhaps the GOP needs to see how they can create that reality instead of the fantasy life the party now leads.

    cheerleaders need not apply.

    Had a Virginia State Senate Rep on this week and asked her how Gov Ultrasound and Cuccinelli were elected with these kind of views.  She told Rachel that they didn't present these views when running in 2009 and all this came out afterwards.  Hopefully now that the people of Va know these 2 feel on sex and reproduction they'll never be elected to any office again.
